MoonDancer in G4 Style

I was never a fan of G1, so I have no idea what this character was like in the series ^_^;; So instead I based her personality sorta off of these card things: ponibooru.413chan.net/post/vie… & ponibooru.413chan.net/post/vie…

For G4, I figured Moondancer would be somewhat popular, but still have an interest in the Princess's most faithful Student. Maybe she'd go out of her way to try and impress Twilight, (hosting little get-togethers, etc) or she took Twilight's introverted ways as sort of a challenge. (Take that as you will!)
I also tried to make her Spike's "type", but not quite as Fabulous as Rarity, but still more so than Twilight, if that makes any sense. :icontwilightshrugplz:

Moondancer (c) either Hasbro or someone else, FiM (c) :iconfyre-flye:

EDIT: 7/05/15: Looks like we have a canon version of her now! Turns out I was way-off base in terms of pretty much everything! (I blame Spike for this) Though I did kinda keep the whole bookworm thing haha...ha

Why did you make her look evil? Also, do you do requests?

That wasn't my intention ._.' But nah I don't do requests right now
KurseofKings's avatar
In that case, can you tell me when you will be able to do requests? And can you tell me anyone who'd be willing to draw my OCs?

Aww thank you! I must admit, I do prefer this color palette more than the one that they went with in the show XD

I remember having the OOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLD toy for this one back when I was like, 4 years old. She was always my favorite. :)

This is just how I pictured based on the original G1, Baby Moondancer (man, I'm old!). What an amazing picture!

I wrote about her in my fanfic, an important character. To me, she is another of Celestia's studend, and a talented one, but she was always distracted by parties and trying to make friends, and was always trying to befriend Twilight, who always ignored her.

I did the initial sketch on an oekaki board, (over here: [link] ) but I moved the sketch over to Photoshop CS3

Oh hay I remember MoonDancer. Good job~

If you're drawing G1 ponies in G4 style, please, PLEASE draw Wind Whistler! She's my favorite G1 pony~ She's a lot like Twilight Sparkle, as in being very very smart, but she doesn't show her emotions often because she finds it unnecessary. There's an entire episode based around that. She reminds me of Bones. In fact, she's EXACTLY like Bones!

Ooh That's not a bad idea actually! :D I didn't watch the show, but I did see Wind Whistler in the Escape from Catrina movie. I remember liking her color scheme and the way she talked~ such an elegant and modest & intellectual Pony <333

Of course I'll probably change her a bit, (as I'm sure Show!Moondancer is probably different from my version of Moondancer XD) but I'll try to do her justice c:

Really nicely done! Moondancer was one of the first MLPs I owned and one of my very favorites, so I especially love this.
